Does leave my hair very soft and shiny. I removed a lippie for the packaging. There is no way to close this tight for throwing in a suitcase.
Shampoo -Head and Shoulders - Smooth and Silky 2 in 1

It does keep my hair flake free for a day or two, but it strips the hair color right out. I have very dry hair so I always used a conditioner with this, so I can't comment on whether the smooth and silky came from the shampoo or the conditioner I used.
Mascara -Maybelline - Great Lash Mascara Waterproof

Raccoon eyes by the end of the day!
Absolutely waterproof. It has dried out before I could even use half of the jar and I had to repurchase it, but that's ok, because it will take you 6 moths just to use that much. I can't apply this in the car and that's its only drawback. Love both black and sepia.
I don't like the 2 step process. My lashes tend to look spidery. It does last all day, but don't expect it to last if you jump in the pool.
I feel let down by my fellow reviewers it had a 70% would buy again when I bought it. However, this product sucks. Can't even go a full day at the office without undereye black smudges.

Just got it and really like it. My hair never looked right with a flat iron, but with this it is as advertised and gives my hair nice body. I have wavy, medium textured hair. I wish it had a handle to grab, my hand automatically tries to grab it but all surfaces are hot. And this thing is pretty loud too- but nowhere near as loud as a hairdryer. Also I got this from Target for $99 if you don't want to order it off the tv.

I received the Black in a kit that contained mascarra and an eyeshadow. It did not work well with the cream based eyeshadow, but then the next day I tried it with powder based eyeshadows and it wore about 12 hours before I thought it needed touching up. I was very pleased and am about to buy it in other colors as well. (II did not use it to line the rims of my eyes, just the upper and lower lashline.) UPDATE:Have tried it in other colors and doesnt seem to be holding up as well. Removing 2 lippies.

I have extremely dry hair and this product actually retains the oils in my hair. It's not my HG because it seems like my scalp gets too greasy, with the ends not getting as moisturized as I would like. I really like the fact that it seems to retain the color in my hair.

Before I found this wash, I had horribly itchy skin. I have been using this for years and am still in love. Recently had to use something else and had scaly patches on my arms. Went right back to Dove and the patches went away immediately.
Hair Color -Wella - Color Charm Conditioning Permanent Gel Haircolor

I'm using from Sally Beauty Supply: Wella Color Charm Liquid Creme Haircolor in terra cotta. I bought Wella after reading rave reviews on the red colors that don't fade as badly as other brands. I've been using this now for at least a year and a half and it is a beautiful color that doesn't hardly fade.
You don't know what you have until it's gone. I've been using this for years and I had no idea how hard a good waterproof mascara was to find until I couldn't find this one. But I've gotten it back. Last all day no flakes or smears, even take a shower in this and you'll be fine. 4/5 lippies because it can create those "spider legs" if you over apply.
Beautiful color. Long lasting. I made up my face in all Bare Escentuals and slept in it and still looked good almost 24 hours later. I deduct one lippie because it is messy and doesn't travel well.
It's very easy to over apply and lashes look gloppy. I also think it smudges way to easy. I agree with other reviewers who stated the tube is too big and the wand too chunky to get to smaller lashes.
This review is for when I first used this product in 1999, it had just hit the shelves. I used Cardinal Red. I have been dyeing my light brown hair to auburn for many years and switching around different hair color products attempting to find one that delivers a color like Robin Christopher's (Skye) from General Hospital and won't fade. Even if the color isn't quite what I want with all other products attempted it has always come out a pretty natural shade and I always get comments when I first color it. Not with Feria, it came out a DEEP PURPLE. Of course I've never used it since, and it is now 2007 and I'm still searching for a color that won't fade.
